I have alway wondered what peoples opinions are on fur. Is it OK to wear real fur when we are out and about town or at a fashion week ?or is faux fur the safe way to go incase of a paint attack. There is nothing more beautiful than your Nana’s vintage fur coat that stinks like mothballs but looks oh-so-fine on with a pair of oversized sunglasses. I think the small chance of a paint thrower scares me so much that I have never worn a real fur coat when I am out to an event or just around the city, but should this be the case? Should I just wear the darn luxuriously amazing fur coat that fits like a glove and makes me look super famous? Perhaps I should have a plan of what to say if a protester approached me and asked if it was real, I could laugh at them and say ‘No way!’ and hope they believe me. I don’t know, I need your advice, but for now, I am loving this old school faux fur coat I picked up on ASOS a few years back.
